Progressive Dane is so … white

Live by the race card, die by the race card

Let’s squeeze in one more blogge before Uncle Joe and Kamala take away our guns, confiscate our crucifixes, and make us speak Chinese.

While our national government lurches to the Left, the peoples’ republic of Madison WI says “hold my latte,” you capitalist running dog!

The far-Right Proud Boys who stormed the nation’s capitol 01-06-21 are being tracked down, arrested and shamed on national television. Madison atones for the nation’s sins by electing BLM/socialist hit squads to government office.

We are done with kumbaya jokes about naive Madison liberals, their nuclear-free zones and backyard chickens. The hard Left walked off with their podium a few elections ago. Dane County Democrats have gone the way of the Whigs and pocket change. Not sufficiently anti-cop. No place for Dave Cieslewicz, the former mayor. Dane Dems are not Defund Police, Derail the Jail, Cops Out of Schools. For that ninth circle of Hate, you need Progressive Dane. Nine of the 20 alders are PD; more vote with them. So is the mayor. 

Now, it turns out, even Progressive Dane is not vicious enough. Their bullhorn batteries are weak. Their marches lame. Worse, they’re too White!

“I’m sorry but stop letting Pro[gressive] Dane gatekeep [apparently it’s a verb now] progressivism. A group with 90% White people who have problems with many people of color and don’t always vote with Black lives is just SUS. They are cultish and it’s unnerving.”

This Nada Elmikashfi speaking. The lady with the hijab is chief of staff to State Rep. Francesca Hong —the legislator who spat the C-word at constituents who operate Wisconsin’s idiosyncratic neighborhood taverns.

Follower Dyna Long agrees. “Is Pro Dane not predominantly White? Do they not have zero membership of their Black colleagues on city council?” (They might have asked, “Do they not bleed?” but this ain’t Shakespeare.)

CORRECTION: The following statement was made by one Angela Lei Clearly and only directed to Elmikashfi: “Yes,” agrees Elmikashfi. Cleary, “When I see groups in leadership positions that are made up of well heeled and mostly White people, they all look the same to me.”

Elmikashfi and Hong endorse Brandi Grayson for Madison alder. Because the incumbent, Ald. Sheri Carter, is not Black enough. Go figure. So do alders Tag Evers, Rebecca Kemble, Arvina Martin, Shiva Bidar, Mad Max Prestigiacomo, Grant Foster and former Ald. Donna Moreland (now resident in Gov. Evers cabinet).

Megan Berge is on board. “I was involved with Dane Dems and Progressive Dane in my 20s. Because of the misogyny and objectification of women I completely dropped out and was disillusioned by local politics. … I am so glad to see the involvement of truly progressive, radical BBIPOC folx and womxn in local politics right now.” Yeah, that’s how she spells.

Blaska’s BottomLineElmikashfi is backing David Hoffert who is challenging Ald. Tag Evers in the Monroe-Dudgeon neighborhood. Sorry, Tag, you’re not progressive enough. It happens.

How could Madison get any crazier?

    You forgot the Utah Black Lives Matter / Antifa crisis actor John Earle Sullivan. He was instrumental in setting up the homicide by shooting. It’s ok to notice him, now, because he’s been written up at Town Hall. In fact, it’s OK to notice Antifa was involved in the event at the Capitol, so perhaps you would care to revise and extend some of your previous remarks?

      Never-Trumpers were so offended by the man’s tone that they overlooked his massive accomplishments and the left’s radicalized agenda.

      Wonder if they’re clutching their pearls knowing that 11 million illegal aliens will be granted amnesty, an incompetent has been nominated for a health cabinet position, critical race theory will again become prioritized, cops will again be micromanaged, 74 million Americans (all Trump supporters) are being categories as domestic terrorists, and free speech is in jeopardy.

      But hey, Biden’s Tweets (likely penned by a intern) will be pleasant.

    Think that’s crazy; just read the following from Channel 3000: https://www.channel3000.com/minocqua-brewing-co-raises-money-to-oust-johnson-tiffany/
    “WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) — The Minocqua Brewing Company’s Super Pac has raised more than $50,000 as part of its effort to oust U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany because they challenged the election of Democrat Joe Biden.

    The Wausau Pilot & Review reports that the brewery has already paid for billboards throughout the region calling on the two Republicans to resign.

    The company announced the launch of a Super PAC the day before the riot at the U.S. Capitol.

    In a Jan. 4 post announcing the Super Pac, Brewery owner Kirk Bangstad calls lawmakers who are advocating for Trump’s victory “traitors to our country.””

    I wonder if Kirk would say that about anyone who voted or supported Trump? I would also wonder if he has the same opinion of those who voted or supported Trump that are or were members of our United States Military? Men and women who voted for and supported President Trump, men and women who fought for our country. Men and women who sometimes were wounded or killed in action. I wonder if Kirk considers those people traitors too?

    But when you grow up with a silver spoon in your mouth and get to go to Harvard University which just the tuition runs about 60K per year.

    Must be nice!

    Kirk, I really could give a damn if you think I’m a traitor for voting for and supporting President Trump. But if you consider those men and women who voted for and supported President Trump and at the same time served our country in the military as traitors for voting and supporting President Trump; then you can shove that right where the sun never shines!

    Oh BTW- Kirk, now that I know what kind of person you are, not that it will make any difference to you, but I will never spend a penny on your products. EVER!
